珍妮法官猛烈抨击记录妇女被强奸的火车乘客: “社会彻底解体”

“这说明一个社会的解体. 这是一种没有感情的文化, 当我们真的看到他们在我们面前时,他们就失去了人性,” 皮罗说 “美国新闻编辑室。”

Pirro noted that two factors likely played a role in the passengersinaction. The first is the psychological phenomenon known as the bystander effect, where the presence of other people doing nothing discourages action on the part of the individual during emergencies.

第二, Pirro asserts that the lack of a Duty to Rescue law in most U.S. 状态, 包括宾夕法尼亚州, wherein you are not required by law to help someone in need, played a role in the passengersinaction.

some exceptions to the doctrine, such as when an individual’s negligence creates the need for a rescue, or if the person initiates a save attempt but their effort is negligent. In these situations, an individual may be liable.

仍然, Pirro said that the passengers had a lot of time to step in, given how long it took for the woman to be harassed, 殴打, and raped.

“这太可怕了, this is awful, and this woman—what if he had taken out a knife? Would they still have continued to videotape this? It is a shame that these people are involved and you know what right now they’re the people that should be ashamed,” 她补充说.

Surveillance footage showed Fiston Ngoy, 35, who has been charged with rape in the sickening attack aboard a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority train, spent nearly 45 minutes harassing the woman and touched her breast at one point, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The incident spanned 27 stops on the train line.

MAN ACCUSED OF RAPING WOMAN ON CROWDED TRAIN WAS RELEASED FROM IMMIGRATION DETENTION, NEVER DEPORTED

Police said the rape lasted about six minutes as other passengers looked on while holding their cell phones, but didn’t use the devices to call 911, SEPTA’s police chief said Monday. An off-duty transit cop eventually stepped in and pulled Ngoy off the woman.

Pirro said that the mostoutrageousaspect of the case was Ngoy’s prior arrests and convictions as well as his expired U.S. student visa status. He was previously released from immigration detention and never deported.

If I were a gambling woman I would say misdemeanor first-time sexual assault probably started as a felony, they gave him a deal, and he’s still in the country and he’s here illegally—and no one’s going to send him home,” 她说.

Pirro added that prosecutors often do not takethe mantle of the victimand said that when judges take the side of the criminal over the victim it further encourages thetotal disintegration of society.
